Now that you’re over 50, you may have noticed some aspects of your health changing. Your vision becomes weaker, you’re not as strong as you used to be, and maybe now you have to start watching what you eat. However, just because you’re over 50 doesn’t mean that your sex life has to take a nose dive too.
Sure, sex may not be the same as it once was—you and your partner are older, probably busier and more tired, or you simply don’t have the time. But if you both put in the work, you can still have an amazing sex life.
So, if you’ve noticed that your sex life has been lacking since you hit 50, the following tips will help you and your partner rekindle the fire.
Improve intimacy over 50
Go slow. Maybe when you and your partner were younger, a quickie in the closet was exciting. Now, not so much. It’s important to take your time and slow down to really enjoy yourselves. This means taking the time to focus on foreplay, building excitement, and really getting each other in the mood.
Stay limber. Nothing puts more of a damper on your sex life than being sore, in pain, and unable to move. Keeping yourself limber and flexible can ensure that you don’t pull a muscle when you’re doing the deed. Keeping up with a regular workout routine will not just keep you limber, but will also keep you in good health to ensure you can enjoy a healthy sex life for years to come.
Shower together. What’s sexier than being in a shower with your loved one. Enough said.
Use plenty of lube. Friction is painful, and as you age, women’s natural lubrication decreases because of less estrogen. So, to ensure both partners are enjoying themselves, you’ll want to make sure you use plenty of lube. And you don’t have to opt for chemical-rich lubrication, as many all-natural products are available.
